Probably fine: You should monitor for infant sedation or shallow breathing but these are rare unless you are usng higher doses.At regular doses this is usually well tolerated bu the infant and other than the possible sedation does no harm.

Codiene: in low doses for you can be a higher dose for the baby who has a higher total body water and larger volume of distribution smaller muscle mass prolongs clinical termination of action so baby will sleep more so try to avoid codien
